Rachelle Meyer was born in the state of Texas and spent most of her childhood with her nose in a book. Reading became the wellspring for her continuing passions in life: drawing, storytelling and traveling. She graduated with a degree in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin before working in New York City for eight years as a graphic artist. She has since moved to Europe and launched a successful career as an illustrator, specializing in children's books and editorial work. Her talents have been used to interpret the work of contemporary best-selling authors such as Dave Eggers (A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius), Audrey Niffenegger (The Time Traveler's Wife) and Nick Ortner (The Tapping Solution). She also writes and illustrates her own picture books and graphic novels. Rachelle is the co-founder of a creative collective called Therewise Enterprises (est. 2016) which produces artfully crafted books, limited-edition prints, and creatively generated digital content. She now lives in Amsterdam with her English husband, her Dutch son, and her pocket sketchbook.
